How to use radio buttons for an arpeggiator's directions?

    Hi all, very new to max- ANY help appreciated. I'm trying to figure out how to use the radio buttons to switch between the direction of which the arp pattern is being outputted (choosing between the two counter objects)... they both work when connected individuals, I just don't know how to choose between them using the buttons. please help! see pic for ref.

      you could use 'gate' to gate the metro to one of the counters, but you don't even need to do that, you can attach the radio-group directly to just one counter's 2nd 'set direction' inlet(0 = count forward, 1 = count backward; ...delete the 2nd counter altogether) and it'll do the trick:
      also, since you mentioned you're new, just in case you find it useful for future reference: if you ever want to paste a patch to the forums, you can 'Select All' then choose 'Copy Compressed' from the 'Edit' menu, then paste here(make sure you're in patching mode, when selecting-all at first).
      Hope it helps, Welcome to Max :) 🍻
